Representative Text

1 Go and preach the blessed gospel,
Tell of Christ the Crucified;
Go and bring men to the Saviour,—
He who for us all has died.

Go ye into all the world,
And preach the gospel to ev’ry creature:
Whosoever believeth shall not perish,
But have eternal life.

2 Go and tell to ev’ry creature
That the blessed Lord will save;
Go and tell them of his goodness,—
How his life he freely gave. [Refrain]

3 Go and tell in all your weakness,
Christ will give you strength and pow’r;
Go and tell how Jesus loves them,—
That he saves this very hour. [Refrain]

4 Go and tell of peace and pardon
Purchased by a Saviour’s love;
Go and tell of rest forever
In your blessed home above. [Refrain]
